July Programming & Activities

Summer is now in full swing and we have some exciting things to look forward to at the Accora Centre. We look forward to welcoming all of our residents back as soon as we can safely.

Accora Centre Re-Opening

With Monday’s announcement from the Ontario Government, our team is working hard to open the centre as soon as possible. Our facilities, programs, and services have been modified to adhere to COVID-19 health and safety guidelines. More details on programming, member services and an official re-opening date will be announced early next week. Stay tuned!

Our indoor and outdoor pools are open from 12:30 – 7:30 p.m for reservations only.

Swim to Survive

For National Drowning Prevention Week, we will be running our Family Swim to Survive program. The program will run at the outdoor pool on Wednesday, July 22. There will be one session from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. and a second session from 12:00 -1:30 p.m. This is a free swimming lesson for families, but a resident over the age of 18 is required to be in the pool for children to participate.

Bike Rentals

We are excited to announce that bike rentals will be available next Tuesday by reservation. Full details can be found at accoravillage.com/centre/ next week.

Playground Re-Opening

Beginning Friday, July 17, the playgrounds and play structures throughout the community will be open for residents to enjoy again. We encourage all residents to continue to remain 6ft apart from anyone who is not a member of your immediate household.

Virtual Fitness Classes

Our virtual fitness classes with Personal Trainer, Shane Azzie, will be continuing throughout the summer. Join us every Wednesday at 5:00 p.m. and every Friday at noon for total body workouts you can do from the comfort of your own home!
